IDENTITY

The Zinnkoepflé hillside is a unique limestone terroir due to its Mediterranean microclimate, its south/south-east exposure and its limestone-sandstone soil. Classified as a Grand Cru terroir, it produces wines that are high in bouquet, spicy and full of power. It is also the highest terroir in Alsace, culminating at 431 m of altitude.

WINEMAKING

Long fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by a prolonged maturing on fine lees, the wine is then bottled for a minimum of one year before being sold.

Deep golden yellow with beautiful legs.

Powerful, with notes of candied fruit, apricot and pineapple.

Balance between freshness and roundness. Identical aromas as on the nose with a hint of honey on the finish.
